Applications Open for the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps 2024 International Exchange Program

ARLINGTON, Va., April 16, 2024 ~ The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) has announced that it is now accepting applications for its Summer 2024 International Exchange Program. This program offers qualified Sea Cadets the opportunity to travel to one of three countries – Canada, Japan, or South Korea – to interact with their counterparts and immerse themselves in a different culture.

According to Jennifer Weggen, co-director of the program, participating in the Sea Cadets International Exchange Program is like "unlocking a door to the world." She believes that this experience will not only allow cadets to visit new places and make lifelong friendships, but also help them grow and develop in ways they never imagined.

To be eligible for the 2024 International Exchange Program, cadets must be aged 16-17 and currently in grades 9-11. They must also hold the rank of Sea Cadet petty officer third class (PO3) or above and have a valid U.S. passport up to March 1, 2025.
